My complaints are two. I came without the screw to hold the umbrella in so luckily another umbrella stand had one that fit so now the other stand just has one screw and not two. Umbrella stands should have two screws and most do. This one only has one which means you cannot make the umbrella steady. For the money, this is a dumb error on their part. It is super heavy though. Being so heavy it's not something easy to return or I would have. Order another stand. Yes, this one gives you color choices for the base and if tha'ts important, than this one is acceptable but not my first choice anymore. Oh, if you do not cut your umbrella pole down like I had to and you put your umbrella all the way down into the stand, it will be more steady than mine so part of the wobble complaint I mentioned is my fault, not the stand's fault. But I've had to cut down every umbrella I've ever gotten so if I have had to do that, you might also

I wanted a heavy stand and this is it. I was so disappointed when I opened it and saw the color. I ordered the yellow and it was not even close. It could almost pass as a rust color. I thought maybe they packaged the wrong one! If I had known that, I would have ordered the standard black. I'm keeping it because I didn't want to have to deal with the return of that heavy thing....but no one will know except for me that it's not the yellow I ordered!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Not close at all. I ordered the yellow and it's like a dijon mustard color. Kept it though.

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? With the exception of the color, site description was accurate.
I was really looking forward to the delivery of the umbrella stand. The description is "resin" and the color I picked was white. I was so disappointed when I opened the package and the product was actually the color and texture of brown beach sand. It looks and feels like someone went to the beach and took a mold to make a casting. Chunks of sand had also cracked off of the bottom during shipping. DO NOT buy this product if you want the base to be white.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Terrible
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Arrived broken on the bottom
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Totally misleading
The only reason I would not recommend this or any heavy product is the items are not protected in a shipping box. The base is Great, BUT it was delivered in the original product box only. There was no shipping box to protect this heavy product from destroying the box and item in transit. The base was just slightly damaged and two small parts were missing. I was able to rig something to by-pass the missing parts. I love overstock but will not buy anything heavy.

Bought this base and have used it for a while. it does not fully support my umbrella unless u use a table. The umbrella is not firm and keeps swinging in the wind despite using the screw to tighten it. then to add insult to injury the screw broke and I cannot find a replacement. The base itself would be excellent if only the part u attach the umbrella to can tighten as is supposed to with the screw. Any idea how to replace the screw
This is the base I was looking for because it easily supports my large outdoor umbrella. I have two large umbrellas both supported with the two new large bases that I purchased. These resin bases are heavy and are able to support the weight with tipping. I suggest that you consider this item to add to your outdoor decor.
This is a great stand. Used it all summer and did not blow over at all . We had several storms and a few times the umbrella was open and did not turn over! I usually close it if storm coming, nice to know if storm brews up while not at home I'm in good shape.
This umbrella stand was just what I needed to keep my umbrella from moving around when the wind blows! Keeps it nice and steady. Arrived promptly, although the box was torn up, the stand was in perfect condition. It is very heavy, and is great quality. The chocolate brown color is as shown, and looks great with the cushions on my patio furniture.
We got this to use with an umbrella with a larger than average pole diameter. One thing you need to be aware of is that the tube is quite tall so if you are using it with a table with a lower umbrella guide, you may have to be creative. We placed some 2 x 4 blocks under the table legs and raised the whole table!! We actually like it better now that it is higher. The measurement from the bottom of the umbrella stand to the top of the tube is approximately 14 1/2". If you use the adapters, add about another 1/4". We have had quite a few severe "pop up without warning" storms and the umbrella and stand haven't budged an inch. A great improvement over our last stand that would blow over along with the umbrella and table.

HEAVY!! Which is a good thing when trying to hold something down like a huge umbrella:) I got the black one...obviously sits under the table so who cares what it looks like...no one seeing it...seems to be holding up very well after 3 summers...not brought inside for the winter...just wish the screws that hold the umbrellas in place could have a rubber or plastic cap on them so it wouldn't be metal on metal (metal pole for umbrella)...my umbrella would turn in the wind:(
